Then the boy decided to leave home for the village of Prostokvashino.

In the new place, Matroskin and Uncle Fyodor found another friend, the dog Sharik, and began to live together.

For the first time, the cycle was adapted into a series of cartoons - “Uncle Fyodor, Dog and Cat.

The cartoon "Three from Prostokvashino" was the next adaptation, released in 1978.

A year later, a continuation of the story appeared under the title "Vacations in Prostokvashino."

In 1984, the cartoon "Winter in Prostokvashino" saw the light of day.
